Story: Kwame Asare Boadu, Kumasi

More than 30 minutes of torrential rainfall forced officials yesterday to reschedule the Asante Kotoko-Dolphins CAF Confederation Cup match to today (2 p.m.) after Kotoko had taken a first half one goal lead.
Midfielder Jordan Opoku had scored on the stroke of half time, but it became impossible for Angolan referee Jose Antonio to continue proceedings on resumption. The pitch at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi was so waterlogged that ball control was impossible, and the rescheduling of the match was a perfect decision.
Kotoko struggled in the first half to maintain any grip on the game as Dolphins tactically swept them off in the middle.
In attack Nana Arhin Dua and Eric Bekoe, who recovered from an injury last Wednesday for the Dolphins match, could not punch the needed holes in the Dolphins rear. Keeper Ejiogu Chijioke dealt with the few shots that went through until Opoku beat him from close range.
